A Christmas Farm Truck & A DIY Snowglobe

I added a few Christmas decorations to my Ikea bookcase that I wanted to show you.   My red farm truck  is off to deliver Christmas presents and a tree!

I think this truck is going to be loads of fun to play around with all year long!

I made this snowglobe with a battery operated dollhouse light fixture and a canning jar. This is an easy winter/holiday craft!

How many ways can you upcycle a  Ball Jar? Love this! It looks so pretty at night. This is super easy. Basically you just glue whatever it is that you want in your globe to your lid and fill the jar with some fake snow, screw the lid on, turn it upside down and  you have a waterless snowglobe. I think one of those battery operated Christmas candles would be pretty too.

    Love the way it looks…each shelf stands alone, yet it all works together. One favor: would you please right your red book…A Redbird Christmas…it’s standing on its poor little head. =D

    Morning, Manuela! Oh, how sweet and I just love your little truck with all the Christmasing inside. The snow globe is just a great touch. You’re so creative! :)
    Be a sweetie,

    I love the truck and the snow globe. The globe is simple but very cute. I can hardly wait to see what else you do with that truck. Is it old or a reproduction?

    • Manuela says

      Reproduction. I did look at vintage toy trucks but they are very, very expensive in half way good condition. This one is from Hobby Lobby at 50 or 40% off and gives me the look I was going after.

    I always love stopping by to see what you’ve done in your home but Christmastime is even more exciting! I love your Christmas farm truck and all the things you’ve done to bring the season inside. I saw a yellow farm truck when we were in Washington last week. I’ll share it on my blog later today – and, oh, how I wish I had brought it home with me!

    Anything looks good in the jars with the snow. I made some last year with my littles and they stil are adorable. I love the truck. Did you buy it or find it. It matches my hubby’s fire truck.

      I bought it about two months or so ago at Hobby Lobby. They only had one at the time though. So I don’t know if it’s something they would still carry but it can’t hurt to look!
